#SummerRefresh: Balance

This week’s topic is Balance brought to you by Sara at She Cooks, She Crafts, She Runs.

 

As with anything in life, things can quickly get out of hand.  Think you need to spend every moment out of work at the gym?  That’s excessive.  Obsess over every single bite that enters your mouth?  You will become miserable and drive everyone around you crazy with your obsession.
Sometimes it’s hard for us to recognize that healthy can become UNhealthy when the balance topples.  The yin and the yang must be in sync for things to truly run smoothly.
One of my favorite ways to even myself out is yoga.  It stretches out muscles that I work in running, biking, and strength training.  I have an opportunity to work on meditating.  I work on slowing down.  I am so much more flexible since I started.  The reasons can go on and on.

#GoalsCheck 500x500

My goals for this week:
  • Stretch and foam roll. Every. Single. Day!
  • Drink water
  • Drink more water
  • Stretch some more

Yep, that about sums it up. My husband told me I’ve been twitching and kicking in my sleep and I’ve been sore. Guess it just dawned on me I haven’t really been stretching or using my foam roller since starting marathon training.

Got a new record at the gym this morning for the stair master: 30 minutes! Then abs and weights.

Did you workout today?

What are your goals for the week?

  3. My goal is to focus on cross training on my non-running days…I tend to be a cardio junkie and need to branch out into some strength training. :)
